Hehe, my line. By using the word “Photoshop,” would that be a copyright infraction, or would it only be one if the term “Adobe” were used?

-MindGame, liking this idea :D [/quote]

I hate to sound impatient, but I’d just like to clarify this. Would it be a copyright/trademark infrangement?

I do not wish to speak for RevMen or Brickfilms.com but since MG is bordering on sounding impatient…

Fair use laws permit the mentioning of products in art, literature, and movies, it is only when one portrays oneself as a representative of that product that courts have been willing to step in and take action. So long as your movie does not portray itself as being an official Photoshop advertisement, I can imagine no risk whatsoever in merely mentioning the product (other than in the audience not understanding the reference).

Thank you, saulgoode. Plus, I figure RevMen wouldn’t have chosen it if he’d known it would cause some sort of legal infraction. Thanks for clearing that up :)

Yeah, he’s kind of smart that way.

Actually, yes, I probably should push it back a week or so. That should line up better with some people’s holidays.

Wahey I’ll enter then!

I don’t know, but slander (i.e. accusing the product of having properties that it doesn’t) could also get you in muddy water. If it’s just an opinion (“Photoshop sucks, because it has no “) you’ll be fine, I think. Unless Photoshop actually happens to have that function and you didn’t look well ;)

I’ve got Real Producer for encoding, but it slows down my film. I’m going to make my movie file through there, but how do I make it so it doesn’t go slow?

Please take all of the film encoding questions to other forums. Let’s just use this thread for discussing the contest.

As for the Photoshop thing… what Saul said.

Excellent, thanks! If I get a Logitech QC Pro 4000 this Christmas, that will give me about two weeks to animate. I wonder if I can pull it off… :rollgrin:

In the mean while…time to start script writing!

I have the Student Licensed version of Adobe AE(what I use for facial animation etc), which means I’m restricted with what I can do with it commercially. Would I still be able to use it for this contest if I turn down the DVD thing?

Yes. You can always opt out of inclusion on any DVD.

Yeah but mine doesn’t, the deadline is better pushed back and besides if yours ends on the 9th, why does it matter to you?
